AI-generated books are becoming more prevalent in online retailers. Online retailers are increasingly stocking AI-generated books.
The emergence of generative AI technology is posing new problems for the book industry, including the proliferation of AI-generated phoney books in online bookstores and writers’ efforts to stop unauthorised usage of their works by AI companies.

The New York Times reports that titles created by AI are appearing in a variety of book genres, including fiction, business, self-help, religion, programming, gardening, commerce, and craft books. This trend has also had an impact on travel guides. Buyers may find it difficult to discern between titles produced by AI and those authored by humans, and reader reviews are becoming less trustworthy as a result of posts created by AI that are meant to inflate ratings.

Recently, fraudulent books using her name and claiming to be written by her were found by publishing expert Jane Friedman. These books were probably produced by AI. Amazon asked her if she had registered her name as a trademark in response to her complaints, but eventually took down the book listings. Friedman wonders how this issue will be handled by smaller authors.

Data about books has become valuable to AI developers as a result of the AI boom, but it is also a source of suspicion for artists. Prosecraft, a project by Benji Smith, offered statistical analysis of published books along with excerpts of their texts, but it was pulled down out of concern that the data would be used to train artificial intelligence.

Concerns about the AI employment market are only one of several waves of change. Ted Oberwager of KKR argues that while AI can empower authors, editors, and creators, the author will always be at the core of the economic model. Artificial intelligence training data is at risk due to the contamination of virtual book shelves since it is difficult to pick out fake AI-generated content and it can negatively affect big language models.
